Overview

Explore Montreal’s Jewish past on this 2-hour interpretive walk. The Museum of Jewish Montreal offers visits to historic Jewish neighbourhoods led by the expert museum staff. This interactive tour will immerse you in Montreal’s Jewish past by using features of the city’s urban fabric and mobile technology to animate and illustrate the community’s diverse and vibrant history. Discover previously lost or unknown stories of Jewish Montreal.

Tur Malka is the name given to Mount Royal by Montreal's Yiddish poets in the early 20th century. By drawing the name "Tur Malka" from the Talmud, these poets claimed one of Montreal's major landmarks and its symbolism as their own. This tour explores how Jews in Montreal interpreted the cultural and geographic conditions they faced and the contrasts between Jewish visions for their new home and the realities of life in this city. Tur Malka begins and ends at the Museum of Jewish Montreal.
